  1. 1. Mechanisms of P fimbriae cell activation

    Författare :Maria Hedlund; [2000]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; type 1 fimbriae; LPS; glycosphingolipids; ceramide; E. coli; P fimbriae; mucosa; cytokines; Microbiology; bacteriology; virology; mycology; Mikrobiologi; bakteriologi; virologi; mykologi;

    Sammanfattning : Microbial attachment to host cells plays a central role in the induction of inflammatory responses and the production of the disease. Uropathogenic Gram negative bacteria carry surface lectins that specifically recognize oligosaccharide receptor epitopes expressed on glycolipids or glycoproteins. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Escherichia coli Fimbriae, Bacterial Persistence and Host Response Induction in the Human Urinary Tract

    Detta är en avhandling från Division of Microbiology, Immunology and Glycobiology - MIG

    Författare :Göran Bergsten; [2004]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; mykologi; virologi; bakteriologi; Mikrobiologi; mycology; virology; bacteriology; Microbiology; IL-8; IL-6; neutrophils; GFP; mucosal host response; Type 1 fimbriae; P fimbriae; adherence; virulence factors; regulation; deliberate colonisation; Escherichia coli 83972; Urinary tract infection; asymptomatic bacteriuria;

    Sammanfattning : Urinary tract infections (UTI) are among the most common bacterial infections in humans. Symptomatic UTIs may be acute, recurrent or chronic but the most frequent form of UTI is asymptomatic bacteruria (ABU). In ABU, the mucosa remains inert, despite the presence of large bacterial numbers in urine. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Molecular determinants of disease severity in urinary tract infection

    Detta är en avhandling från Lund University: Faculty of Medicine

    Författare :Ines Ambite; [2019]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Asymptomatic bacteriuria; urinary tract infection; acute pyelonephritis; cystitis; Escherichia coli 83972; host response; NlpD; RNA Polymerase II; transcription regulation; inflammasome; Il-1β; ASC; NLRP-3; hyper-inflammatory disorder; MMP-7; IL-1RA; genetic susceptibility; IRF-7; siRNA therapy; P fimbriae; type 1 fimbriae;

    Sammanfattning : In the urinary tract, Escherichia coli infection may result in life-threatening disease, or asymptomatic bacterial carriage, comparable to bacterial commensalism in the gut. Pathogenic strains trigger a disease provoking host response which differs depending on the infected organ. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Mechanisms of microbial-host interaction during asymptomatic bacteriuria

    Detta är en avhandling från Division of Microbiology, Immunology and Glycobiology - MIG

    Författare :Jenny Grönberg Hernandez; [2013]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Asymptomatic bacteriuria; Urinary tract infection; Escherichia coli 83972; IRF3; TLR4; Evolution; host response; promoter polymorphisms; transcription; P fimbriae; Type 1 fimbriae;

    Sammanfattning : Urinary tract infections (UTIs) present an interesting and relevant model for studying microbial adaptation. After establishing significant numbers, the bacteria either cause severe disease, or an asymptomatic carrier state resembling the normal flora at other mucosal sites. LÄS MER

  5. 5. The mechanics of adhesion polymers and their role in bacterial attachment

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Författare :Johan Zakrisson; Umeå universitet.; [2015]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Pili; optical tweezers; bacterial adhesion; fimbriae; uncoiling;

    Sammanfattning : Bacterial resistance to antibiotics is increasing at a high rate in both developing and developed countries. To circumvent the problem of drug-resistant bacterial pathogens, we need to develop new effective methods, substances, and materials that can disarm and prevent them from causing infections. LÄS MER
